Energy and Power

One of our most developed Physical Sciences areas, Cambridge Scholars Publishing’s books on Energy and Power focus on the theory, practice, and history of nuclear science and the development of renewable and alternative technologies. Our titles also reach into the practicalities of energy policy, economics, and conservation, with a wider commitment to encouraging the use of sustainable and accessible energy technologies.

A Handbook of Nuclear Applications in Humans’ Lives

Without using nuclear technology, today’s societies would not be as developed as they are. Increasing public knowledge about the countless advantages of this technology not only improves people’s health, but also it significantly provides economic growth for the whole society. This handbook provides a full, comprehensive introducti...

Energy and Humanity

Sometime around three million years ago, the first hominid walked on this planet. In the time which has elapsed since then, the descendant of this biped has evolved to reach the top of the food chain. Furthermore, it has manipulated other lifeforms and Earth’s resources in a manner that makes these entirely subservient to only one ...

Peoples, Nature and Environments

This volume brings together perspectives from scholars of different scientific backgrounds endeavouring to understand and debate the interactions and relationships between humans, nonhuman species and natural ecosystems in order to overcome the classic human/environment dichotomy. Through discussions informed by the humanities, art...

Political Ecology and Environmentalism in Britain

This collection of essays highlights the different dimensions of the contemporary British environmentalist movement from a multidisciplinary viewpoint. Beginning with an historical overview of the movement, the reader is then presented with an analysis of the politics of climate change from a political science perspective. This is ...

Advances in Renewable Energies and Power Quality

This volume brings together contributions dealing with renewable energies and power quality, presented over five years of the International Conference on Renewable Energy and Power Quality (ICREPQ). It contains a selection of the best papers and original contributions presenting state-of-the-art research in the field of renewable e...

Cities and Cultural Landscapes

Places are locations of value where psychological and cultural needs are satisfied. Human relationships with particular environments play a key role in motivating, developing, and nurturing the life of societies. Undifferentiated space becomes ‘place’ as we understand it better and its built and natural forms become endowed with va...

Microbial Biodiversity

Biodiversity is among the richest treasures of the earth. Despite their small size, microbes play a vital role in environmental monitoring and making the earth sustainable. Microorganisms preserve and assist plants and animals o either directly or indirectly, and, due to their omnipresence in nature, they inhabit conditions such as...

The Large Grid Integration of Small Residential Photovoltaic Cells

This book, through step-by-step modelling and simulation, demonstrates why the large integration of small residential roof-mounted photovoltaic cells into the public grid is one of the best solutions to mankind’s energy problems, given the consequent low impact on power systems’ dispatching centres. It introduces and develops a new...

Global Implications of the Nitrogen Cycle

Nitrogen constitutes 78% of the Earth’s atmosphere and inevitably occupies a predominant role in marine and terrestrial nutrient biogeochemistry and the global climate. Callous human activities, like the excessive industrial nitrogen fixation and the incessant burning of fossil fuels, have caused a massive acceleration of the nitro...

The Paradigm of Harmonious Progress in Energy

This book serves to define the foundation of the idea of harmonious progress in energy. It clarifies the main problem of the current ecological situation, namely the tendency to treat nature as an inexhaustible pool of natural resources and absorber of harsh outcomes of economic activity. Current definitions of progress in this cas...

Improvement of the Structural Integrity of Ceramic Parts

In contrast to previous epochs, we live in a “new ceramic world” where advanced ceramics are engineered for specific applications. This book highlights studies in the fields of fracture mechanics and materials science as promising avenues for the quality control of ceramic products. It proposes new approaches to solving issues rega...
